Default Industrial hip hop type thing?

I was listening to one of my all time favourite track last night (Hard Left, by Tackhead - I'd post a YouTube link, but I don't think my post count is high enough yet), and I would love to find more stuff in the same style (I should maybe add that I feel like I've been living under a rock, musically, since 1991 - hey, this is why I joined MB!).

I've seen them described as industrial hip hop, and I did a search on Google to get some names associated with the genre, but I was wondering wether anybody would be kind enough to give me some recommendation as to specific albums (or even tracks) I could start with? Thank you ever so much...and feel free to direct me to an old thread if that's already been covered. I did a threads search, but didn't come up with anything that looked relevant.

Dalek are probably the most popular or well known examples of industrial hip hop, so they would be a good place to start off. I would recommend their 2005 album Absence.

Sounds like you need some early Meat Beat Manifesto. More often associated with Industrial and electronic than hip-hop, but their early style was very hip-hop. And based on that Tackhead track I'm checking out now, you should like it - even though it's more aggressive & abrasive. Check out the albums Storm the Studio and Armed Audio Warfare. You might also check out Consolidated - though I've only heard one of their albums.




^ there are better versions/mixes of this song (like below!)...but it's still good and at least there's a video to watch to really put you there.

Sounds pretty good, I'm definitely going to track down those albums, thanks!

And, wow - that "Strap Down" video is ...something else!!!!

Default Got $25 in Itunes...what to buy

Not a fan of the older hip hop or the new candy stuff. I'm a fan of lupe, but want to get in to something like the newer sounding The roots or Jay-z material. Any suggestions for albums? thanks

It should probably be mentioned that Dalek sounds nothing like Tackhead though. Turquoise_Days, if you're looking for stuff in the vein of Tackhead I second Sidewinder's recommendation of Consolidated and would also recommend Rise Robots Rise.

So, I'm still very much a hip hop noob but have found that I really like 90s East Coast. What is something else I can try along the same line as A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast, Nas, etc.?

if anyone hasn't heard Big Boi's debut that came out this year it's a definite must-listen, might be my favorite hip-hop album of the year.

plus this video is just awesome


this is probably my favorite track off the albums, although the video has hardly any views
